Parting Speech.

This is the end. We're over now.
Don't blame it on the girl I once was,
Because her promises were real --

For that part of me will always love that part of you.
Trapped in a time and place so far from where we're standing;
Buried in a history no one can take away,
And none can remake.

No. Blame it on the constant turning of the earth,
and the way my hand fits into another's.
Blame it on the freshly fallen snow,
And the human need
To be loved.



  1. I feel like this is a break-up manifested in words. So poetic and melancholy. It reminded me of a quote I love from...Runaway Bride of all movies. She's talking about how all her previous fiances didn't really know her because she had done everything to convince them that she was exactly what they wanted.

    That's one of the hardest parts of relationships, is staying you and not losing yourself in that other person. I'm a hopeless romantic though and completely believe when you meet "the one" they will fall in love with exactly who you are and visa versa.

  2. Such beautiful words. I'm in love with this, AND that beautiful photograph...
